129589, There is an old saying, "If it seems to good to be true, it probably is", I also think this can be applied to bad things as well, "If it seems to terrible to be true, it probably is".
Over the years I've collected a great many predictions, (both good and bad), Conspiracy theories, (both good and bad, the good ones are rare though), its a sort of hobby of mine.
There is one true pattern that I have seen emerge from studying these things, is that the great bulk of the doom and destruction predictions and theories, do not happen, and are found to be based on nothing but people's imagination, and are not proven with evidence.
There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, as there are with all rules, but these exceptions are rare. The pattern is unmistakable to those that study with an open mind.
Matt Simmons made some dire predictions about this oil spill, that have not occurred, when I first read these predictions, I thought they fell nicely into the "If it seems to terrible to be true, it probably is" category. However, this in no way closed my mind to the other things that he promoted, such as renewable energies, and exposing the corruption and greed of the oil companies and government officials.
Speculation about his death doesn't help promote his message, it helps promote the agenda of those that would like it to be a planned murder, but cannot prove anything.
